Community Service Hours for School and Other Community Projects
The Food Bank welcomes volunteers seeking community service hours for school or other educational projects. Please read the below instructions.

Court-Ordered Community Service
If you are required to serve hours in conjunction with a court order, please read our instructions for court-ordered community service.
The Food Bank has a limited number of volunteer opportunities for those seeking to fill court-ordered community service. We only accept those wishing to serve court-ordered community service hours for non-violent offenses. Court-ordered community service volunteers are approved on a case-by-case basis as openings permit. In order to request volunteer hours for your court-ordered community service, you are required to read our policy and submit an online request form.
